When The first Photosafari was realized, we thought it would be great if we had 500 guests in the Neretva Valley, which we already exceeded in the first year. We did Not have enough of our own “lađa” to offer the enjoyment of photosafaria to a number of guests who were interested in it. In order to increase the number of boats, we went to rebuild the old ones who mostly slept at the bottom of the rivers and lakes of this region.
With the increasing number of guests, we developed our offer, educated more and expected new challenges with joy. Nothing happens overnight, and so does our success. By Achieving cooperation with reputable travel agencies from the country and the world, our program has been known by more and more guests who wanted to experience the life of Neretva.
We have realized that we need to give people comfort and expand our offer. In This area there are exceptional benefits for the development of excursion tourism, which we have used. After the expansion of our “Lađa” fleet – , we have created research among tourists in order to find out what they would like and how we can expand our offer, aiming to satisfy every guest.
Most of the guests responded that they would like to dine somewhere on their photosafari trip.
And that is How the idea of the neretva house taverne become an actual project. The neglected “old lady” – over 100 years old- located in the village of Čović in Prevoznik was reborn after the renovation and the Neretva House Taverne became reality.
